A little girl held her mother's hand

And took little steps to reach the balcony,

She wished if a fairy with a wand

Could give her some happiness from the agony;


The girl reached the open balcony

With her mother by her side,

She prayed to the Almighty-

"Please keep my father alright."


Her mother's eyes filled with tears

She sat on her knees by her daughter-

Concealed her agony with fake cheers,

And made some laugh with her daughter;


The mother hugged her daughter tight,

And kissed her on her forehead-

Assured that her father would return alright

And all of their agony would fade;


The little girl didn't speak a word-

And slowly turned to return back from the balcony,

She spoke softly,"My Daddy wasn't a coward-

He fought for the country and now would never return alive,

But he'll always remain alive in the memories of us, nation and the army.........."
